Robert Carrier’s review:
Though a relatively intriguing story (I imagine it would be much more engaging for individuals who actually experienced the culture alluded to in the film - late 1980's San Francisco - firsthand), as with many documentaries on niche subject matters, it quickly becomes apparent just how little there is to document. While watching the film, I was constantly reminded of Winnebago Man; the characters at the heart of this tale lived sad, depressing lives and to have fun at those people's expense leaves the viewer with just a touch of guilt. As with peeling an onion, sometimes it's prudent to be cautious of just how much you expose.
